Lots of votes this time around, for a very controversial poll. Oddly enough, I'm surprised that the most popular option was "Nothing really bothers me"...

Now I'm curious how many people like the gender-bender type of series. Ranma 1/2, anyone? I guess if it's built into the series, it's okay, but if a series unexpectedly had a character change their gender, it'd be really weird.

New Poll - Character Shift
This week's poll by StephKuran is a bit harder to pin down. Imagine your favorite manga character was changed by the author in some way. Which type of changes would annoy you the most or make you the most mad? It technically depends on why you like that character, but that's what the comments are for!
